No sign of winter in Bundaberg

BUNDABERG is making the most of a lingering summer.

With the past two weeks presenting many locals, backpackers and visitors alike with numerous public holidays and long weekends, hundreds have flocked to our region's beaches, parks and camping sites to take advantage of the warm and mostly clear weather.

With beaches full of activity and camping sites packed the temperature in past weeks has remained in the mid-20s despite being well into autumn and heading into winter, with many pulling out the warmer clothing and extra blankets in anticipation of cold snaps.

Despite the extra precautions, locals can relax with Weatherzone forecaster Noel Hanna predicting a week of pleasant weather with no cold fronts or serious rainfall.

“Bundaberg can expect the weather to stay around the mid-20s with temperatures remaining between 16 and 26 degrees,” Mr Hanna said.

“We are expecting temperatures to drop slowly throughout May gradually decreasing into June where temperatures should remain above 23 degrees.”

With fine temperatures predicted for the coming month, there will also be no extreme changes in rainfall in coming weeks with only isolated showers around the region this week with less then 10mm expected.

By Sunday Mr Hanna anticipates that there will only be scattered showers developing throughout the day with just 5mm rainfall predicted ensuring that there won't be a huge dampener on the region's Mother's Day celebrations.

With no extreme temperature or rainfall predictions and no immediate turn towards autumn or winter, locals can delay the seasonal change and continue enjoying our ideal weather conditions.
